Paul Blart: Mall Cop (2009)
If you like King of Queens...
You will like/love this rom-com. James plays a similar, more innocent (but just as lovable) role as a mall cop in his second major role in a feature film. (I doubt it will be his last) And because of that, i think he plays it well (he has years of this PG-style performance from sitcoms) This film is getting a lot of hate due to its innocence and cliché-edness. Any old intelligent dude can make up something original, but it takes skill to mold existing gags (jumping into break proof glass) funny in a new dimension, and i think Kevin James and Happy Madison handle this task excellently. And despite a lot of the trash talk this film has put up with there are a few twists which you won't see coming. I hope we see more of these performances from Kevin James in future, its what he does best! 8.5/10
My Sassy Girl (2008)
The first rom-com I've ever disliked
It doesn't even belong in the genre, it doesn't give you that warm feeling at the end like most do. Some people say this movie is 'different' and therefore good. There is a reason these type of movies have a common formula, because it works!I don't know if this could be considered a spoiler, but the couple who are apparently 'in love' don't kiss until the last scene. There is no chemistry whatsoever between them, it is not a believable love story and I went through much of the film hating the leading female. She treats the other guy like dirt (again idk if this is considered spoiler material) and by the ended up hoping that he wouldn't end up with her for his sake. I've given 3/10 for a decent ending which still nowhere near compensates for a childish, boring movie. If you have a night in with your other half, steer clear of this, id recommend something along the lines of 'How to lose a guy in ten days' or some such. 3/10
Overrated?Not by a long shot........
"Juno" is not overrated, i had heard it was so i went to check it out for myself.It is an absolutely brilliant piece of filmaking.If you haven't seen it yet GO NOW you'll love it! The main carachter (Juno) is in a bad situation but she just takes it in her stride.This is one of the best aspects of the film.Her ability to just make a joke out of anything.This doesn't mean there is no feeling here.There are some funny parts, but also some very emotional parts at all the right times.I haven't seen any other films with this girl in but the guy who gets her pregnant(can't remember his name) was also in Superbad(another recent ingenious picture that goes much deeper than sex jokes as some people should acnowledge)Anyhu this deserves to be in the top 250.And thats that! 10/10
